Gung Hay Fat Choy! {And a FREEBIE!}

Chinese New Year is coming up (on February 10th!)! And for those of you who've been following me for a while you know my district uses Houghton Mifflin reading curriculum. 

We're working on the story Chinatown right now, so I created these literacy activities to go with the story and the skills we're working on this week! Even though they were created with HM in mind, you could absolutely use these even if you don't use the same curriculum!

Plus, Nikki at MelonHeadz created this adorable clipart so I had to use it! :) 

Take a look:

They cover four skills: 

Common & Proper Nouns

Suffixes -er and -est
*Sentence Match
*Rule Posters 

Consonant Clusters WH-, SH, and TH

Alphabetical Order
*Three differentiated levels
*ABC order to the first letter, second letter, and third letter

Included with ALL of the activities are:
* Recording sheets
* Answer keys
* Student directions
* Teacher directions 
* Word cards

All of the activities can be used with whole group, small group, or at independent centers. In addition, each activity is aligned with Common Core! 

Head on over to TPT to check them out! 

Here's a little freebie from the pack for you: 

Just click on the picture to download! 

I'm looking forward to incorporating some fun Chinese New Year activities- art, read alouds, and other fun stuff in our room! I'll be back this week to share!!! :) 

Hope you are having a great weekend!!! They just go by so fast, right?!?!
